A Poem, Under The Bed

I wrote this creepy little poem months ago, I believe, around Halloween last year. We have many different fears when we are kids, such as “don’t go in the basement at night, don’t look in the closet, or don’t look under the bed.” This poem focuses on something lurking under the bed. Don’t be afraidContinue reading “A Poem, Under The Bed”

A Poem, Escape The Room

Dramatis Personae: Six perfect strangers in search of an exit from an obscure little room.Setting: A random room in the middle of Nowhereville, they should have read the signpost up ahead because they would know that they have just ventured into “The Twilight Zone”— sorry, couldn’t resist, haha! This is no ordinary room; it isContinue reading “A Poem, Escape The Room”

An Intimate Look at the Mental and Physical Aspects of the Fitness of Life

**Right off the bat, I’ll add the disclaimer that there are two shirtless pics in this blog. I don’t want anyone who may read this to be caught off guard by the pics. They are used to depict a past version of myself and the journey back to that version. I’ve been debating on whetherContinue reading “An Intimate Look at the Mental and Physical Aspects of the Fitness of Life”

A Poem, Cast No Shadow

I put this poem together a few months ago. This chronicles a person struggling with his sanity, but we soon learn why at the end of the poem. The person casts no shadow, and it is really beginning to wear him down mentally. The sun stares at me like an accusing eyeThe moon by happenstance,Continue reading “A Poem, Cast No Shadow”

A Poem, Love’s End

This was a pretty heavy poem to write. I can’t say that I have ever been in a relationship depicted in the poem, but I can relate to the emotions of it all. We all have the relationship battles that we fight throughout our lives. In a story I wrote, two characters constantly fell inContinue reading “A Poem, Love’s End”

A Poem, The Pharaoh’s Curse

I’ve always had a huge interest in Ancient Egypt. So many enigmatic things surrounding the entire civilization. One of those enigmatic things, for me, is The Pharaoh’s curse. It was quite clear with a dire warning to not disturb the tombs. The speculation of the curse intensified after the opening of King Tutankhamun’s tomb. AllContinue reading “A Poem, The Pharaoh’s Curse”

100 Followers!

I have to be honest, I am not entirely sure about the etiquette of celebrating certain milestones here on WP, but I feel like this is something definitely worth celebrating. I just reached 100 followers! It has been a crazy month, but a fun-filled month, that is for sure. Thank you for the support andContinue reading “100 Followers!”

A Poem, The Death of Death

I had planned to use this poem in my novel, Curse of The Walking Man, but it ended up not fitting. While The Walking Man uses death as a great equalizer and is a grim reaper of sorts, I found it essential not to sympathize with such a foul beast. I lurk in the shadows,Continue reading “A Poem, The Death of Death”

A Poem, In Pieces

At some point in our lives, we’ve all faced adversities that have shattered us. We collect the pieces and continue with life in any way that we can. I wrote this poem a little while ago, and it encapsulates the impetus of our return. I collect the pieces in a jarI do not want toContinue reading “A Poem, In Pieces”

A Poem, The Lonely Zombie

I wrote this at the height of the zombie craze. I figured I would unleash it on the world at some point, and then I misplaced it and completely forgot about it. I finally found it a few minutes ago. The living run from me in fearI stagger because I’m starvingI let out a strainContinue reading “A Poem, The Lonely Zombie”

A Poem, The Whipping Boy

My wife was describing a part in a show she watches. She was telling me about how one character takes so much abuse due to the other characters’ mishaps. Naturally, I blurted out, “oh wow, like a whipping boy?” —-And there we go, I had a topic to keep me busy for the day, haha!Continue reading “A Poem, The Whipping Boy”

Dad Mode Activated

We all have tons of work and projects to complete, but it is essential to put family first. For me, it is my “dad” hat.  Whether it is singing in the car: Or being a pillow: It is a duty I take very seriously. I know that those little eyes are watching, and I knowContinue reading “Dad Mode Activated”

A Poem, The Valley of Bones

Another macabre poem with inspirational intentions. The bones are longing to be returned to the living. One day we will rise upThe cracks in my bones tell my storyWe need to drink from the cupAnd we will be restored to former gloryWe lay here in solidarity, littering the groundNo flesh is left, but a crowContinue reading “A Poem, The Valley of Bones”

A Poem, The Gallows

Continuing with this kick of dark poetry that I am on, here is a macabre little nugget that I whipped up… Swinging in the windIronically with exuberant lifeWaiting for the one that sinnedHearts in dire torment bleeding strifeAround the necksThe hangman callsAnother life it wrecksPull the lever, the floor fallsThe noose whispers and singsDeath lurksContinue reading “A Poem, The Gallows”

A Poem, The Jar of Flies

I figured I would share another poem riddled with torment. It focuses on the brokenhearted people who have had their hearts ripped out and left alone to heal. In the end, some become jaded, never fully regaining the heart they once had, ultimately replacing it with something to fill the void. In this case, itContinue reading “A Poem, The Jar of Flies”
